The Deputy Governor of Edo state, Comrade Philip Shuaibu has revealed why he decided to oppose/fight his former political boss and Ex-APC chairman, Adams Oshiomole in the last Edo Gubernatorial elections.
Shuaibu, while addressing a crowd at a reception ceremony in honour of a past chairman of Egor Local government area of the state, Ogbemudia Eghe, he disclosed that he faced Oshiomole in order to achieve his goal of ending poverty and eradicating Godfatherism in Edo politics.
In his words: “For me, people say I am loyal to Obaseki, I am loyal to a cause, I was brutalised and injured and had my knees and everything replaced under Oshiomhole’s administration, all this was that some godfathers wanted to derail our making poverty history and we fought on the side of the people and the beneficiary of that struggle was Oshiomhole.”
“The second fight, he (Oshiomhole) now became the new godfather trying to derail, making poverty history and I fought on the side of Governor Obaseki in making poverty history in Edo. So, the player doesn’t matter but what is constant is that whoever stands on not making poverty history in Edo will have all of us to fight and I will be in the forefront of that fight.”
